Explaining the popularity of hardwood flooring

It's classic, timeless, and versatile enough to work with any design. Wood flooring also comes with some pretty essential benefits, such as adding value to your property. For these reasons, it is, and will always be, one of the most popular floorings.

Image is everything

It’s simple to get a wood floor to fit your style; when you come into our hardwood flooring company, you'll see hundreds of domestic and exotic species, a large assortment of stains and finishes, various plank sizes, and grain patterns. You'll also see textured surfaces, like hand-scraped, distressed or smooth.

How you will see value

First, 70 to 80 percent of the product cost will be reflected in your home's value. Theoretically, a house valued at $400K could become worth $415K or more after installing the floors. Also, if you are even remotely thinking of selling, know that real estate sales associates around the country state that potential buyers will often pay up to 2.5% more for a home with wood floors.

Other benefits include

1. Easy care. The most important thing to remember is that excess water can damage wood, so wipe spills immediately. Other than that, they need only regular dust mopping or sweeping and vacuuming once a week. Clean and polish every two or so and employ simple strategies, such as placing mats at entrances and using protective furniture feet when moving.

2. Cost-effectiveness: Wood floors last for years and, unless there's structural damage, refinishing is all it takes to bring them back to luster. That translates to no replacement costs.
